Morawiecki said they discussed a variety of topics, including the EU budget and threats to trade due to trade wars and protectionism. Morawiecki emphasized that Poland wants the EU to be both an economic and political global power.
Michel proposed they dedicate a significant amount of discussion during the next European Council session towards “strategic debate needed by the heads of different states so we can focus on key issues,” such as climate policy.
